If there is one thing Republicans and the Obama Administration love more than pandering to Wall Street, it is the abject 20-year failure of the charter school industry
If, as privatization "reformers" in Republican, corporate, and Obama Education Department claim that America's public schools are dire failures, then America's wealthy public schools with unionized teachers, and tenure, would be failing and not at the "top of the international charts."
